Help me give my students math fluency kit for 5th grade to learn with hands-on materials.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are creative, inspiring, and need some new materials to work with to continue their learning. They are primarily Hispanic and come from a very low income area. Most of my students started speaking Spanish when they were younger and didn't start learning English until they started Kindergarten.
This makes learning a challenge at times.
Our school is a Title I school that has over 90% of our students receiving free lunch. The families at our school are required to volunteer at least 20 hours a year to help support the school.
Learning math fluently takes hands-on materials to enhance the students learning. When students are able to manipulate materials, they are more engaged in their lesson and they move their learning into their long-term memory. I would use this kit to work with students of all levels in 5th grade math. When I teach math, I try to limit my instruction to 15 minutes. Then we go into rotations including a small group to reteach the standard, games to enhance and engage student learning, and hands-on manipulatives so that students can learn by doing. These supplies would be used to reteach, enhance and engage students in math.
